Video Gaming in Your Community
Although the State has decided to make video gaming devices legal in Illinois, local government officials have the right to prohibit them. If not prohibited, the local attorney must become familiar with the regulations of video gaming in their community. Join us for this informative presentation in which an Illinois Gaming Board representative provides an overview of the Video Gaming Act, the licensing requirements for video gaming locations, and examines which responsibilities fall onto local governments and what further regulations may be asserted by them.
